What does outsourcing refer to?

Outsourcing is the practice of contracting out specific business tasks or functions to external service providers or third-party organizations. Often, this is a cost-effective way for businesses to improve efficiency across their processes and free up time to focus on their core competencies.

Common areas of business that are outsourced include customer support, manufacturing, and marketing. In a world where an increasing number of teams are working remotely, one of the most essential functions to contract out is recruitment and HR.

With a solution such as Multiplier, organizations can hire the right talent from anywhere in the world without having to set up a legal entity there.
